Cam has as little to complain about as just about anyone on this team. If anybody should be upset, it's the defense that kept us in striking distance all day. If Cam hadn't played horrible for the first three quarters it wouldn't have come down to the final drive. I'm all for blaming the coaching staff for those STUPID calls on the final drive, but Cam could have iced this game with a half decent first three quarters.
Gutless football. What happened to "Riverboat Ron" with your three straight running plays on 1st and 10 when your QB is straight up dealing and moving the ball better than he has all year. A first down there might even end the game. Just the worst field management/clock management I have ever seen in my life.
He needs to be more of a distributor while maintaining that net drive that makes him so dangerous. He's never going to be an elite shooter, but he can get the ball to the basket and get to the line. He just needs to be able to use that ability to find the players that get open when they collapse the box on him.
Anybody considered the fact that it's also because Cam likes to hold the ball a very long time waiting for routes to develop? Granted, his line is terrible too but he's not a three or five step drop kind of QB. He doesn't throw receivers open, which is what I feel is probably his biggest flaw as a QB. Cam uses his athleticism to buy time to get his WR open but that doesn't always work. I think that's why a lot of coaches have said that Cam needs to make quicker decisions and to maintain his fundamentals through his throws.
With that said, it's NEVER a good idea for a QB to get hit this much. You saw what it did to David Carr, one of the most naturally gifted throwers to come through the draft in a while. Sometimes the guys have the mental makeup to never recover from that kind of shell shock. Cam is made of tougher stuff than that, but it's still concerning to me.
